GRILLED SALMON with EASY LIME BUTTER SAUCE

GRILLED SALMON with EASY LIME BUTTER SAUCE

Cockpit dining doesn’t get much easier than this.  Remember that Quinoa Cabbage Salad (recipe here) that was so yummy?  Well, it was even better the next day.  And because it was Captain’s turn to grill, all I had to do was whip up the lime butter, pour some chilled wine and enjoy the view. GRILLED SALMON with EASY LIME BUTTER SAUCE what you will need enough fresh salmon for two salt and pepper 2 small zucchini olive oil to drizzle…

MAPLE PINEAPPLE GLAZED MAHI MAHI

MAPLE PINEAPPLE GLAZED MAHI MAHI

Sadly this recipe uses the last morsel from our recent Rhode trip gifts.  Going to have to learn to gather our own treasures from the sea from now on. But…. …with this ‘holy-crap-gonna-catch-us-something-big’ lure, how can we lose?  It even comes with the name ‘Tormenter”.  Watch out! The beauty of these types of dinners is the ease in cooking.  Most fish takes just a few minutes from prep to table.  This was no exception, although I let the filet marinate…

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

We were recently gifted with some tuna from our sailing/fishing friends and wanted to put together something worthy of their generosity. In my search, I landed on what looked like a winner from The Domestic Man.  Simple, very quick to prepare and cook, plus I was introduced to a new-to-me seasoning, Furikake, a combination of sesame seeds and nori seaweed.  Well, I thought to myself, I can make my own, which is what I did. All this to say, my…

EASY FISH TOSTADAS

EASY FISH TOSTADAS

I’ve been trying to come up with ideas for easy meals that can be made with what we have on hand in the galley. Sort of like tossing my Foodie Dice. It’s a fun way to plan meals and is certainly a creative exercise. From time to time I toss my dice (read all about ‘playing with my food’ here) and from time to time I just wing it. Today I winged it..wung it…(whatever the past tense of the verb…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 3 and 4

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 3 and 4

Still breathing, still kicking, still haven’t killed each other. According to the Whole 30 timeline we are about to hit the ‘Kill all things‘ phase, so I planned our meals with lots of carb-dense veggies to help offset any carbohydrate withdrawl. On Day 3 though there was a moment when I felt a serious PMS session coming on but without the P or the M. At one point, François said: “Leave it to me to find your one last nerve!”…

CAPTAIN COOKS – Soya Ginger Marinated Tuna

CAPTAIN COOKS – Soya Ginger Marinated Tuna

Be still my little Galley Kat heart! François asked: “Can we do another Captain Cooks blog post?” He plans it. He shops for the ingredients. He prepares it. AND… He even cleans up! Could there be any other answer than YES!!!? The following is the latest of his galley creations, always made (he says with a wink) with a ‘secret ingredient’ (don’t worry, I took the photos so I know what it is and promise not to leave it out)…

EASY STOVE TOP SALMON

EASY STOVE TOP SALMON

Most of the time our onboard meats are grilled on the barbecue. Captain Francois (AKA Captain Cook) is usually the one who ‘mans’ that appliance. But today the weather was rainy, we had taken the barbecue down to mount the full boat enclosure and I had already taken our proposed grilled salmon from our home freezer to marinate. Being the resourceful Galley Kat that I am (or have to be on a boat) I wrapped those sweet juicy jewels of…

SALMON CHOWDER

SALMON CHOWDER

When the wind does not blow your way, adjust your sails. The same applies to menu planning on a boat… What happens when the weather turns bad and you had planned barbecued salmon, roasted pepper and potatoes, and grilled corn? ….Lemons to lemonade people… We ran into a fairly hefty storm today. Nine hours of waves, winds and bone soaking rain. Trying to be resourceful while keeping it simple sailor (KISS), I went below and prepared a wonderful belly warming…
